for republicans is they have insisted that the debt is the reason we need to do the kind of draconian budget cutting they have been proposing since president obama won the white house back for democrats. and look what happens to the conservative rationale for budget can you tell us when conservatives get more honest about the debt and deficit. a conservative columnist says about the new ryan budget, it sacrificed seriousness for seriousness by promising to reach budgetary balance, not over the long term as budgets 1.0 and 2.0 did, but in a ten year window. this is not going to happen, and more importantly there's no reason why it needs to happen. modest deficits are perfectly compatible with fiscal responsibility. talk about singing a new tune. and the conservative think tank, the american enterprise institute asks why does the budget need to balance in ten years? debt reduction doesn't require balance, just that the economy is growing faster than the debt, while the plan does put the debt to gdp ratio on a downward trajectory, it probably doesn't need to be quite as steep. ezra klein

boosting our economic recovery. speaker boehner has actually agreed with president obama that our debt does not present -- quote -- "an immediate crisis." so you might think the house budget would phase in cuts responsibly so we can protect our fragile recovery. well, instead the house republican budget would do serious damage to job creation and job growth and doubles down on the harmful cuts from sequestration which the nonpartisan congressional budget office estimates will lower employment by 750,000 jobs this year alone and slow our economic growth. mr. president, the house republican budget will weaken our economy in the long term as well. as any new business owner will tell you, in tight times the last thing you want to do is cut investments that help you make you stronger. that's what the house republican budget does. it cuts investments in education so our students and workers are less prepared for the jobs of the future. it would undermine our ability to upgrade our roads and bridges and highways and ports, even though our national infrastructure just got a d-plus from th

sense of where the republican house might be? >> i think marco rubio's more important to watch than senator cruz, with all due respect. i think that watching president obama do a naturalization ceremony was like watching george w. bush. he did a lot of those too in 2005 when he was pushing comprehensive immigration reform, which looks a whole lot like what the obama white house is pushing. but i think it's important and it's a good sign for the white house that senator rubio is still at the table. and i think it's important to -- that they've so far seemed to recognize the importance of keeping people like him at the table. and i think that will affect the outcome and whether or not they're successful. they can keep him and keep that fragile coalition together. >> it's always interesting when immigration bills are being discussed and have been discu discussed ad nauseam. i'm sort of familiar with it. you've seen decades of young people from other people from other lands come and go to great schools here, stanford, harvard, upenn and duke and take the knowledge they've acquired here

enough, the republican continuing resolution that was passed in the house does not include $35 million in emergency aid funding or $10 million for the part c medical clinics that president obama announced would happen on world aids day in 2011. while all of the cuts to health programs are problematic, these cuts are especially devastating because the part c medical clinics are there for financially and medically needy populations that need their service. so our goal -- so are those all the cuts republicans are proposing? no, they are not. they are proposing to pass a budget for fiscal year 2014 and the republican budget would take the cuts in health programs hurting millions of americans even further. it would cut $810 billion from the medicaid program over the next 10 years and make it a block grant, which as we heard in testimony at today's hearing at the health subcommittee would jeopardize health care for children, the disabled, the elderly and the poor. the most vulnerable in our country. it would raise medicare eligibility age and turn it into a voucher for future benefic
